Warren Sapp made it to the Hall of Fame on his first try. He had doubts that it would happen.
“Absolutely,” Sapp told WDAE in Tampa, via JoeBucsFan.com.
Sapp was specifically concerned about his ability to eke out Giants defensive end Michael Strahan.
“Say if I rewind this to Saturday at 12 o’clock me and you are sitting and I say, ‘It breaks down whatever and whatever and then you have Michael Strahan and me. C’mon, the menace and the media darling,’” Sapp told WDAE in Tampa, via JoeBucsFan.com. “C’mon. Madness, or Good Morning America? I mean, c’mon.”
Sapp, who also in the media but at times is anything but a darling, made it through on the first try based in large part on the willingness of the voters to set aside hi Jekyll-and-Hyde tendencies when dealing with reporters and vote based only on his performance and production.
Strahan eventually will make it. But it will come after Sapp and his bronze bust with braids (that’s what he says the hairstyle will be) lands in Canton.
